Sammi Smith

For me, Country Music doesn't seem a natural fit for most female singers. The ones I like best, like Patsy Cline and Sammi Smith, might have country instrumentation behind them, but if you listen close, the vocals aren't really country. I realize that this is a minority opinion. So be it. Sammi died about  five years ago, generally ignored by Nashville and country fans because she was a subtle lady, didn't take herself too seriously ... and wasn't a NASCAR chick with skin-tight leather pants, big hair and huge breasts desperately trying to make a break for it.  ?



Here's another fun one, ukelele, kazoo, taps, the whole ten yards - with disabled embedding.

That Chuck Norris/Walker(Texas Ranger) sure does play a sweet guitar.

Chuck Norris is in reality Stan Hitchcock. (An aside, my wife's cousin used to do costumes for Walker, Texas Ranger before she went into the more lucrative business of providing costumes for porn movies - fact.) To which you are to respond, "Costumes?"

OK. I wanted to let it go, but I can't.

You are off your rocker.

Emmy Lou Harris. Iris Dement. Nanci Griffith. Lucinda Williams.
